Right Angle Grinder (RAG) – Deburring

Deburring or ‘burr removal’ is a common practice in metal fabrication and manufacturing processes. Burrs appear when sharp pieces of metal form or metal compression occur during the early fabrication stages. Deburring is a critical stage of metal fabrication to ensure that a part is properly prepped to improve the functionality and longevity of the metal part. It also ensures that the part is safe to handle as any sharp edges are removed and will also aid in providing a better surface for finishing and painting.

Our selected Norton products for manual deburring in our RAG range will quickly remove burrs smooth any rough edges or ridges. The range offers flexibility so you can be sure you have the right product for the task at hand, whilst also providing optimum performance in removal rates, longevity and overall value.

The Norton range for deburring will quickly and easily achieve radius bevelling on metal projects and will also remove surface defects whilst resisting clogging on soft materials. 

There is a choice of grades to choose from which will cater for light to heavier deburring, as well as softer to harder deburring without causing any potential risk or damage to the workpiece.

Cutting-Off To A Commercial Finish

DEBURRING AND SHAPING

The high performance ceramic grain of Norton Quantum flap discs maximises stock removal to deliver an aggressive, consistent cutting action. Flap discs deliver longer life and more comformability compared to a fibre disc, allowing
you to adapt to the workpiece edge for better results.
Grit P60 produces light finish lines, which can be easily removed using a BearTex non-woven surface blending disc; use a powerful angle grinder above 1200W for optimum performance.
